Best of Boston

2001 Best Cinema, Commercial

General Cinema Fenway

It’s expensive, it’s crowded, and the lobby has as much charm as an airplane hangar. But then, you don’t exactly go to a movie theater for the ambiance. You go to escape reality for a couple of hours, which Fenway’s stadium-style auditoriums accomplish exquisitely. Pay your nine bucks, nestle into your personal Barcalounger, drink in the immensity of a 63-foot-wide screen, and soak in the explosions from a Sony Digital Dynamic Surround Sound system. You’ll swear those fighter planes are bombing Kenmore.
